The GNOME Project is proud to announce the release of GNOME 45, “Rīga”.

This release brings a new Activities indicator, a Camera usage indicator new quick settings, a Light system style, a new image viewer and a new camera app, numerous app refreshes and enhancements, and many others.

To learn more about the changes in GNOME 45, you can read the release notes.

You can also watch our release video.

GNOME 45 will be available shortly in many distributions, such as Ubuntu 23.10 and Fedora 39. If you want to try it today, you can look for their beta releases, some of which are already available:

Getting GNOME

We are also providing our own installer images for debugging and testing features. These images are meant for installation in a vm and require GNOME Boxes with UEFI support. We suggest getting Boxes from Flathub.

GNOME Installer

If you are interested in building applications for GNOME 45, look for the GNOME 45 Flatpak SDK, which is available in the repository.

This six-month effort would not be possible without the whole GNOME community, made of contributors and friends from all around the world: developers, designers, documentation writers, usability and accessibility specialists, translators, maintainers, students, system administrators, companies, artists, testers, the awesome local GUADEC team in Rīga, our tireless infrastructure team (thanks Andrea+Barthalion!), and last, but not least, our users.

GNOME would not exist without all of you. Thank you to everyone!

We hope to see some of you at GNOME Asia 2023 in Kathmandu, Nepal!

Our next release, GNOME 46, is planned for March 2024. Until then, enjoy GNOME 45.
